American Fender Deluxe Strat Question

I was just over at the fender.com site and I was looking at theirAmerican Deluxe Strat

http://www.fender.com/products/searc...tno=0101302703

I have a question about trem

Fender Deluxe 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo with Pop in Arm

is it a floating trem?

Regards

André

Re: American Fender Deluxe Strat Question

floating as it doesn't touch the body. not recessed, tho(well slightly...just for accomodating saddles and block, not for the baseplate).

Re: American Fender Deluxe Strat Question

there is a little play for pulling up on the trem, but not much.

Yes, it floats, but not quite the same as an Ibanez locking trem.
If you're thinking it will perform like an RG, Jem or UV - it will not.

I've owned a Strat copy many years back, it was based on one of the 60'ies strats. It had a trem vintage. I just saw this picture and the trem and started to think about the Wilkinson trem which I know is a floating trem. Hence the question.

That I am aware of . I just wanted to know if it can do pull-ups, flutter etc. because I am on the lookout for guitar with a non-locking trem (floating).
